Looking forward to start my weigh loss journey ....

Looking forward to start my weigh loss journey . My objective is to loose 120 lb and get back my mobility, eliminate joints and knee pain, get back into activity and sports. I have suffering with this excess weight since 2010 . I have been big all my life but that to that level. My pre op weight is 356 lb . I was larger that that but I started to watch my diet and calorie intake starting Jan 9th 2016 I was able to loose 25 lb in prep of operation. Liquid protein shake premium from Costco and slim fast hi protein from Walmart helped me in the reduction more importantly support from my wife. I will update post surgery.
